Abstract

I consider the process of top-antitop quark production from electronpositron annihilation, for c.m. energies in the few TeV regime, in the MSSM theoretical framework. I show that, at the one loop level, in a moderately “light” SUSY scenario, the slopes of a number of observable quantities in an energy region around 3 TeV would only depend on tan β. Under optimal experimental conditions, a combined measurement of slopes might identify with acceptable precision tan β values larger that 20.
